    Possibly, but much cheaper and easier to buy a new car with a turbo engine already in it mate...

    not really m8, as you would have to strip the hole enging down and change everything to compensate for thje turbo

    i'm sure you can put a turbo on the 1.8vvt engine without having change the internals, but the cost is a bit high.

    First of all you need a new exhaust manifold to house the turbo and get oil circ from the block somehow. After that you will need to "change the internals" to lower the compression ratio or your engine will blow up. Then it's down to how much the pistons, rods, cams and valves can take, remap the ecu for a turbo map, possibly change the injectors for more fuel. Emissions? Now that's another headache.. Just my 2p on the subject.

    4k you'd be mad as a hatter, surely a new car would be more affordable/relaiable
